Virginia Beach Students Collect “Teens For Jeans” DonationsFebruary 22nd, 2013 at 7:39 pm by Nicole Livas under Personalities, Uncategorized
Some Virginia Beach teens are reaching out to help the less fortunate. When I visited Ocean Lakes High School on February 5, 2013, I told them about my mission trip to Haiti and some of the community service programs I participate in and I encouraged them to also give back. Well, they told me about the “Teens For Jeans” program that they were working on.
They just sent me these pictures of boxes full of new and gently worn jeans collected at the school. They received 380 pairs!
The project is part of a larger drive sponsored by Aeropostale. OLHS dropped off the jeans at the Aeropostale at Lynnhaven Mall and they will make sure they get to Union Mission Ministries in Norfolk. Other local schools also collected jeans, and the organization has received 2.5 million pairs to date from across the country, so this should really benefit a lot of folks who need it! Maybe you have some jeans to donate? Check out the Teens For Jeans website for more information.
